How do you open a Toyota Camry door without a key?

I locked my keys in the car, and I don’t want to pay a locksmith. How can I unlock my Camry without my key?

That sounds really stressful. Luckily, you can use a coathanger to open a Toyota Camry door without a key! But note that you risk damaging your vehicle, so it’s better to call a locksmith if you can afford it.
If you choose to press on, here’s what to do:
  • First, insert a flathead screwdriver wrapped in a cloth or another small wedge into the crack between the door and the frame on the front driver’s side.
  • Use the screwdriver to pry the door slightly open. Be very careful as you do this so that you don’t accidentally damage the locking mechanism on your car.
  • Insert a wire coathanger (or another long, stiff wire) into the crack you’ve created.
  • Use the coathanger to press the unlock button inside your car.
